Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue or Myofascial Release offers increased mobility for chronically tight and over used muscles. Stretching and trigger point work are incorporated to provide relief of postural holding patterns and assist in creating ease and increased mobility and circulation.  .


Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage techniques are designed to relax the muscles, quiet the nervous system and promote circulation. This relaxation massage will help to reduce emotional and physical stress and fatigue. It is often recommended as a part of a regular stress management program.


Hot Stone Massage

This specialty massage is designed to deeply relax both the body and mind.  Smooth stones are heated to just the right temperature and are used to massage the body.  Heat from the stones soothes and relaxes the mind while simultaneously melting away muscular tension. This ancient therapy is an effective treatment for tight and tired muscles.


Aromatherapy Massage/Raindrop Technique

Receive a relaxing massage using an Aromatherapy blend of your choice. The oil blends contain essential oils which are highly therapeutic, concentrated plant oils.  When inhaling essential oils, the limbic system of the brain is stimulated restoring balance to stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion and immune system. 


Fertility Massage

If you trying to become pregnant this relaxing massage is designed for you.  Fertility massage will help prepare your body and mind for pregnancy.  Gentle gliding strokes are used to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, release adhesions, balance hormones, ease emotional tension and calm the nervous system.  The many benefits of massage can assist a woman’s body and offer a natural means to increase fertility.


Thai Yoga Massage

Laura's blend of myofascial and traditional massage is a gentle therapy, consisting of a mixture of light stretching and massage work. During a session, hands-on massagestrokes are used in order to release tension from the fibrous bands of the muscles, bones, nerves and joints, by unblocking any scar tissue or adhesions due to injury in the muscles and surrounding tissues.  Then, light to moderate traction and twisting strokes are used to apply the appropriate tension on the soft tissue, and to achieve a full reflex range of the muscle. This slow and subtle technique can be used to unblock fascia and muscle throughout the body restoring total physical harmony. 

This is a safe therapy that can be used as a preventative method or to promote the healing of an injured, stiff or painful muscle. However, this therapy has also been affective in treating patients with sloppy posture, chronic fatigue, severe tension and anxiety, as well as repetitive stress injuries of the muscular-skeletal system. 

A typical session lasts an hour, and afterwards clients often rave about the total release of body tension they experience. This is why the treatment is often recommended to soothe a plethora of pain-associated conditions including migraine headaches, menstrual cramps, menopause-related pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, whiplash and muscle spasms.
